Soybean granules, soya chunks, or soybean badi is a high protein health food and a recommended option for vegans for their protein needs.

There are many health benefits of soybean. Hence, regular soybean intake may alleviate the symptoms of menopause and reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancer. Most noteworthy, soya protein is even more nutritious than the meat protein. I love soya chunks. Not only it’s rich with protein, antioxidants, fiber, but also cholesterol-free. After paneer and mushrooms, soya chunks are my next favorite thing. I just love it with chapatis. Let’s see how to make this lip-smacking appetizer with healthy soya chunks, stir-fried with a hot and tangy sauce.
